Test by North Korea of a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific ocean will lead to the introduction of new sanctions, which, however, does not help to deter the development of nuclear program of the DPRK, said the chief editor of the magazine «Arsenal Fatherland» Colonel Victor murakhovski.

On Friday morning released a statement, Kim Jong-UN in which he called the speech of the President of the United States Donald trump in the UN «crazy nonsense,» the American President «senile», and promised «to take the most stringent in the history of countermeasures.» Then in new York the Minister of foreign Affairs of North Korea Lee Yong-Ho said to reporters that possible retaliation to the speech of US President Donald trump may be the most powerful test of a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific ocean.

«The political consequences of the test of a hydrogen bomb will be the same as now: the introduction of new sanctions, North Korea’s isolation and so on. But such measures don’t work, and Korea continues its missile and nuclear program, despite pressure from the United States. It is obvious that the new sanctions will not lead to any results», — told RIA Novosti on Friday murakhovski.

According to him, North Korea has the technical capabilities for testing of such nuclear warheads in the Pacific ocean.

«They have demonstrated the undermining of such a charge in the underground mine at its nuclear test site. Its capacity was about 150 kilotons. According to the intelligence Directorate of the U.S. Department of defense, North Korea now has about 6-10 nuclear warheads, some of them have fusion,» said the expert.

He also noted that the production capacity of the nuclear industry in North Korea, according to estimates of the United States, is around 10-12 nukes per year.

Earlier, Russia and China offered the DPRK to declare a moratorium on nuclear tests and missile launches, and South Korea and the United States to refrain from conducting exercises in the region to stabilize the situation on the Peninsula, but in Washington, this initiative was ignored.
